Good morning everyone! Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a quick look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon

You hear their names quite a bit on our newscasts. They are law enforcement officers extraordinaire and their names are Basco and Mako. They are members of the highly effective K-9 units of the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's office. Today we're going behind the scenes of their training and get to see them up-close and personal. They are great dogs that can be friendly, but if intimidation is needed on a case, these dogs are on point. 

There was a whole lot of waiting on the local roadways this morning. Major traffic accidents on both I-10 and 210.  We've got the video to show you what happened. 

Plus have you heard of a social media pre-nup? It seems for some folks dating really isn't dating until it becomes official on Facebook.  So, many couples are now indicating what can and cannot be posted online – especially if the relationship goes south. 

Ben says the sunshine of the morning could turn into the thunderstorms of the afternoon.  Right now he's getting all the information on conditions setting up for later today and will be able to tell us how strong those storms are likely to be. If you want to check out the radar and more weather info you can go HERE.

Remember, you can watch us online at kplctv.com and on air at noon. 

Right now I'm going to say hello to Basco and Mako – they're already here! Maybe, if I'm lucky, they'll allow me to take a couple of pictures with them before the show. 

Have a great day everyone!

    It's a crime scene like you've never seen before. That's the statement that the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury is trying to make. "This is litter in the shape of a body. Outlined as if it was a police scene" says Tom Hoefer, Communications and Media Director for the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury, "Just highlighting the fact that litter is a crime. It's expensive, societally and for tax payers." How expensive? Between $175 and $1,000 in fines. Those convicted c...
